a taste of cecelia bedelia

Monday, June 7, 2010 |
While at this point it’s still a couple of months away, it’s never too early to start thinking of BBAW, or Book Blogger Appreciation Week. This event is scheduled for September 13-17, 2010, and it will be filled with bloggers (and others!) celebrating bloggers, books, and the best of everything. Even though I didn't consider my blog book-focused at the time, I took part with an exchange-type interview last year and discovered a lot of sweet stuff around the blogosphere. I plan to participate again this year.

The format has changed a little this time, so part of BBAW includes registering your blog. I wasn’t convinced that I should ‘nominate myself’ for a category, but it’s being touted as a good way to network. So this post should give you a little taste of what my blog is about (or what I think it’s about…correct me if I’m wrong!).

I review books a lot. Sometimes I fall hard in love with a book and can’t contain myself, as with The Knife of Never Letting Go (1) by Patrick Ness or I Am The Messenger (2) by Markus Zusack.

Sometimes a book is flawed but still worth the read. I found that to be the case with Alex Bracken’s Brightly Woven (3). Other times? The book and I just don’t click.

I also found my name in literature (4) and uncovered an auto trend in YA lit (5).

And that’s not even mentioning my baking obsession. But what I'm trying to do here is to just make people laugh and enjoy myself at the same time. I heart you, blogging!

i love you too! and i love reading your blog... so much to learn from you/ about you. i love how you're witty with every single blog post... not overly serious, which is great :D


and i never would have pegged you as the 'not wanting to nominate myself' type of person. <3
